Reader Greg Miller emailed this photo of an incredible salmon, along with the story behind the catch:
I was on my day off, and on the way to the post office. I stopped on the way at a large lake in northern Michigan where I have been fishing for several years. Attached is a picture of an Atlantic Salmon that ate a Smelt pattern I was fishing. I was using my Helios 8-weight with a Mirage IV and a sinking-tip line. It took about 10 minutes to land the fish. Luckily, someone was standing nearby who was able to take a picture with my cell phone. The fish weighed in at 25 pounds, which is close to the world record for a landlocked Atlantic Salmon.
Wow! I wonder if he ever made it to the post office.
